w FALMOUTH PUBLIC FALMOUTH, MA02540-2e £ I er Krticfe IE In our yearbook we have tried to portray the enjoyments of our Senior Class and the activities of the past year. These activities have been cap- tured in copy as well as pictorially to create a long lasting memory of our times together. As the first class to complete four years at FHS we have encountered many difficulties; yet, by working together we have overcome these problems — and achieved more than we ever thought was possible. Through Senior Activities we have become a united class, but more im- portantly — FRIENDS . Editors in Chief Otygy JLawrence Peter ffones CaroCine SMIJCee usetts Mr. James F. O’Brien 2 DEDICATION The class of 1977 voted to dedicate its yearbook to Mr. James O’Brien because of his concern for students and his love for working with them. Both are clearly seen in his reaction to being notified about the dedication: “I am totally surprised and honored that our kids would think of me that highly.” In the three years he has taught at Famouth High School he has shown himself to be a warm and interested person who genuinely cares about his stu- dents. Mr. O’Brien began teaching in 1969 and came to Falmouth in 1972, where he taught at the Intermediate School. He became assistant varsity hockey coach in 1972. His ability and dedication are evident in the winning teams which he has worked with in the past five years. A graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Mr. O’Brien plans to further his education next year by obtain- ing a Masters Degree in Education. In addition to teaching and coaching hockey, Mr. O’Brien enjoys golf, tennis, swimming, and working around his home. He likes Falmouth and the people he has met here and hopes to remain. We would like to thank Mr. O’Brien for the time and in- terest he has given to us as junior high school students and then at Falmouth High School. Goodbye, Mr. Kinney After thirty-one years of teaching in the Fal mouth School system, Mr. James C. Kinney is retiring. Mr. Kinney graduated from Plymouth High School in Pennsylvania and attended Dickenson College where he received his bachelor of science degree. Upon college graduation he en- tered the Navy and studied meteorology for one year at New York University. After moving to Falmouth Mr. Kin- ney received his master’s degree in education from Bridgewater State College. His teaching began in 1946 at the Falmouth Academy. He has followed the school through many changes, teaching at both Lawrence High and at Falmouth High. With the opening of the new school, he became chairman of the math-science department. His successes and contributions have not been limited to teaching; he was a dedicated foot- ball, basketball, and golf coach and an advisor to the Stu- dent Council and to the National Honor Society for many years. It is with a sense of loss for the school but joy for Mr. Kinney that we include his retirement in our farewell thoughts of FHS.

Within our four years, we saw many changes both good and bad but we were able to survive and excel, thus paving the way for future classes. Ad- justments and changes were made for the benefit of all students because of our mistakes. These changes and many activities were planned by our principal, Dr. Peter L. Clark and Activities Coordinator Mr. James Kalperis. Through the cooperation of all students FHS was able to thrive. As freshmen we were young and scared. This mammoth structure brought new beginnings and experiences. This first year was experimental with a variety of courses such as English Electives and a relatively un- known modular scheduling system. Although the school seemed somewhat chaotic at times, we were able to function efficiently with a large number of our class excelling in the variety of activities open to stu- dents. The sophomore year brought more organization, thus we were able to settle down early for a productive year. In both our freshman and sophomore years annual shows were produced. They were quite successful and as a result we were able to pull together as a working and energetic class. By our junior year there was no stopping our productivity and leadership. Many earned academic honors, while others excelled in music, sports, drama, and art. Our work weekends were very lucrative, enabling us to sponsor “Nights in White Satin,” the annual Junior-Senior Prom. This climaxed a very memorable year. Senior year brought more praise and success. We were the leaders, un- derclassmen looked to us for guidance. The Christmas tree sales set records as the lot was sold out many days before Christmas. Many seniors worked faithfully despite frigid weather. We broke even with “Li’l Abner,” the annual senior class musical. The show was well performed and provided great enjoyment for both audience and actors alike. Our final days together included a myriad of activities in preparation for gradua- tion. The banquet held at Sea Crest was an enjoyable evening as many danced well into the night. The revival of an old tradition — Class Day — aroused excitement. A total of $171,255 was given to deserving seniors at Awards Night with $22,250 awarded by local organizations. Graduation brought tears as well as smiles as the class of 1977 bid farewell to FHS. We can look back upon the four years with pride. Our success is the success of FHS. All who hold the memories will never forget them. “We Did It All For Love” Eugene Phillips Freshman class advisor Latin Joan Tansey Junior and Senior class advisor English Nancy Ryan Sophomore class co-advisor Vasco Pires Sophomore class co-advisor Art Senior Class Officers: President Betsy Gregory, Advisor Joan Tansey, Secretary -Treasurer Wende Chapman, Vice-President Jeff Alexander. 6 Many students from Mrs. Mildred Murphy ' s 4 5 year old class at Mrs. Marshall’s Nursery School worked on the yearbook during their Senior year.

CHANGES During our four years in Falmouth High School, we experienced many changes of course offerings, rules, and environment. In our freshman year we saw the development of the building from an unfinished structure to a complete unit. Walls were pain- ted, floor-to-ceiling blackboards were painted on the walls, the field house was made workable, and the cafeterias were furnished. The suc- cessive years saw the institution of Town Meeting, homeroom seminar, study halls, senior homeroom, the moment of silence, announcements, saluting the flag, a library security system, hall passes, levels, and special programs. As class time was increased, mini courses gave way to longer classes. SSKememh SSreslynan and Sophuomore Shows S op ho more SO) inner Work ‘ ' Weekends + SMSs.

Fall at Falmouth High School is a time for beginnings, for renewing old friendships and building new ones: oppor- tunities present themselves. As well as having a wide variety of new courses to deal with, each student has the option of selecting to participate in one or more of the many extra-curricular activities available. The performing arts begin another season of dramatic presentations and festivals. The chorus and orchestra begin rehearsals and work toward concerts and festivals. The band practices for concerts, festivals, and Saturday afternoon football games. The majorettes, pep squad, color guard, and cheerleaders add color, vivacity, and spirit to various sports events. Soc- cer, Football, Field Hockey, and Cross-country teams work hard to meet the challenges brought by renewed rivalries which beckon triumphs in contests of wit, skill, and strategy.

FHS Cheerleaders began preparations for a busy fall season in early summer. With the help of advisers Tom and Betty MacGregor, Co-captains Sue Madden and Sue Wright led the team in developing ex- citing new cheers and routines. The squad exhorted enthusiastic fans to cheer louder for soccer and football athletes. Marching in the Thanksgiving Parade, which they sponsored, and cheering at both pep rallies capped the spirit season. Between and af- ter games, the girls sold Clipper buttons to boost school spirit, co-sponsored the winter festival dance with the Pep Squad, and seniors Andrea Toran, Sue Madden, June Miller, Betsy Gregory, and Sue Wright hosted the annual football banquet. The marching band is a colorful part of Fall at FHS. Under the direction of Mr. Dennis Marotta, the members spend one hour every other day in school rehearsing the music for the games. In addition, they devote every Saturday of the football season, often braving mis- erable weather, rehearsing music, perfecting old marching routines and learning new ones to play for all of the games, at home and away. The band, in its handsome maroon and white uniforms, helps generate and sustain enthusiasm, excitement, and good will. The musical proficiency displayed by the individual members and the total ensem- ble is the result of years of training, practice, and family and school support, often beginning as early as fourth grade. A popular addition this year was the incorporation of “The Hustle” into a routine. The band, always an important public relations agent, was a vital part of the in-school rally, the Thanksgiving pre-game rally, and the Christmas parade. This hard-working group receives strong support from the Band Parents Organization and the citizens of Falmouth.

The season was highlighted by an aggressive 1-0 victory over previously undefeated (for the last 6 years) Dennis- Yarmouth before a huge hometown crowd. In her third year as All-star goalie, Mona Pinho was only scored upon twice as the offense racked up 16 against the competition. Seeded No. 1 in the Northeast-Southeast Massachusetts State Tournament, Falmouth fell to a strong Walpole squad in overtime 2-1. All-stars chose F. B.

Cross Country Fall of 1976 was a rewarding season for both the Girls’ and Boys’ Cross Country teams. After dropping their first dual meets, the young and inex- perienced boys’ team went on to build themselves into one of the stronger teams in the state. High point of the season was a surprising victory in the all-conference meet, where the Clippers outraced a heavily favored D-Y team to win the tough SMC Division I championship. It was the first defeat for D-Y since the league was formed. Captain and undisputed leader of the FHS squad was senior Brad Robin- son. Brad established himself as one of the premier distance runners in the region by beating all but one of his league opponent s. Hard, consistent work was the key to this team’s improvement. To prepare them for the 2.8 mile race, coach Tom Turkington had the boys running as much as 12 miles a day, with frequent side trips to long, steep hills and rough terrain. The 1976 FHS Girls’ cross country team was another in the long line of outstanding cross country teams. Coach Carroll called the team of ’76 “the best cross country team I’ve coached.” Fifteen girls came out for the team. They were headed by seniors Johanna Forman and Sheila Barrows, veteran underclassmen Nancy Robinson, Nancy Buguey, Sue Wigley, and Joanne Frazier. The girls won the Falmouth Invitational, ran second in the Ridgewood (N.J.) Invitational, won the S.M.C. cross country meet and won the State Eastern Mass. Divi- sion I title for the second consecutive year. In the State Final Falmouth finished second to Mohawk Regional by one point. Hard work, good mileage and great enthusiasm made the 1976 Falmouth team the best ever. The team will be very good in 1977, but the loss of Johanna Forman and Sheila Barrows will leave open spaces that will be hard to fill.

The Falmouth High School Pep Squad, Color Guard, and Majorettes are colorful exuberant additions to sports events. Their energy, dedication, and enthusiasm are vital to the morale of the teams they support and the enjoyment of the viewers who are treated to intricate half-time routines. The Majorettes, through dedication and hard work, developed interesting and entertaining half-time routines. The group participated in Thanksgiving and Christmas Parades and performed at both pep rallies. Cheryl Mooney advised officers Patty Kelleher, Presi- dent; Fran Ross, Vice-president; Pam Henderson, Secretary; Peggy Kelleher, Treasurer. The squad presen- ted roses of appreciation to seniors Pam Henderson, Patty Kelleher, Heather Klimm, and Fran Ross for their loyal participation over the past four years.

Kathy Twohig does hustle The Color Guard stepped out with the band at many events, enthusiastically displaying guns and twirling flags during half-times, Thanksgiv- ing and Christmas Parades, and both pep rallies. Mrs. Dorothy Dutra was instrumental in advising and devising routines, which Debbie Macedo, Flag Caller, led on the field, assisted by seniors Patti Doonan, RaeAnn Knispel, Michele McCay, Karen Payne, Susan Rose, and Kim Tavares. Officers were President Karen Payne, Vice-president Patti Doonan, and Secretary- treasurer Pam Drouin. 20 Pep Squad encourages the players and rejoices with them in victory. Under their new adviser, Mrs. Elizabeth Hankinson, President Nancy Rebello and her junior of- ficers chose to support soccer as well as football. Other activities monitored by officers (Jean Murray, Vice- president; Joan Perry, Secretary-treasurer) included performances in Thanksgiving and Christmas parades and both rallies. Senior Caller June Payne and her soon- to-graduate sisters performed the familiar “Basin Street Blues” routine (Suzanne Boudrot, Leslie Cour- cier, Debbie Dunn, Kim Fernandes, Katie Fiester, Sheila Grady, Roberta Granfield, Joan Hebden, Kathy Leahy, Jean Murray, Joan Perry, Martha Powers, Nancy Rebello). Joan Hebden, Junior Caller, assisted at half-times and Marylee Tansey was the perky mascot.

Zs The Falmouth squad had a well-balanced season with an overall record of 9-6-2. Sparked by Coach Fred Toran and Captain Tim Marken, team morale was at an all-time high. Although fairly low ranking in league standings, the Clip- per Booters were never out of a contest. Plagued by goalie problems thoughout the season, the Clipper defense couped a very respectable 2.00 goals against per game. Coach Toran cited out- standing senior play as a prime factor, which also accrued awards to Mike Morton, Cape and Islands Referees Association Sportsmanship Award; Joe Olenick, Coach’s Award; Peter Jones, Most Improved Player; Tim Marken, Most Valuable Player, League and Cape All- stars. Special mention also came to Peter Jones for bouncing back from a spine injury and shin- ing in clutch situations. Soccer “You never lose, but sometimes the clock runs out on you.” Vince Lombardi 1913-1970 THANKSGIVING FESTIVITIES Parade Marshall McKee embarks The parking lot at St. Barnabas was bustling as floats, cars, and people lined up for the 1976 Thanksgiving Parade. Marshalled by R.C. McKee, the floats, trucks and cars proceeded down Main Street, units displaying many variations of the theme, “The Clipper Beat.” Enthusiasm stayed high as the rally began with an in- vocation by Fr. James Low of St. Barnabas. Following in- troduction of Judges Peter Clark, DeWitt C. Jones, III, and Louis Larrey, awards were made to Honor Society, Field Hockey Team, and History Club for Best Car, Best Float, and Best Truck respectively. Varsity footballers were in- troduced by Captains Tim DeMello and Steve Laliberte. After a rousing rendition of the school song by Mr. Marotta, the band, and the cheerleaders, Mr. and Miss Clipper (Brian McCue and Holly Perpall) and their escorts took bows. Suddenly, the Barnstable Dummy was thrown into the crowd, its shaving cream filling flying all over the Pep Squad, spectators, and other participants. In a surprise move, Tom Nolan conducted the football team in a closing rendition of the school song.

Higgins (Brian McCue) sings “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face ” The Performing Arts Group undertook its most am- bitious project ever with a production of the Lerner and Loewe musical, “My Fair Lady.” Directed by Michael Helfen with Student Director Susanne Phelan, Musical Director Carol Sykes, and Choreographer Pat Lang, the show played to full (at one point, overflowing) houses for four nights in November. Daria Lucas and Kathy Morton shared the role of Eliza Dootlittle, the scrappy flower-girl-turned-lady, while her irritable and unpredictable teacher, Professor Henry Higgins, was portrayed by Brian McCue and Rob King. Bill McKay and Jeff Alexander shared the character of Colonel Pickering. Paul Selig appeared as Doolittle in the McCue cast to allow the latter to play the dustman with unusual oratorical skills on alternate nights. Holly Perpall and Rebecca Webb played Mrs. Higgins; Corinne Callahan and Joanna McKee alternated as Mrs. Pearce; and Eliza’s upper-class twit of a romantic interest, Freddie Eynsford- Hill was performed by Brad Jordan and Joseph Uchmanowicz. The spectacular visual effect of the show was primarily the result of Ryan Young’s remarkable set design and the meticulous costuming by Lynne Francis. Pat Lang’s choreography, including the perennially favorite produc- tion number “Get Me to the Church on Time” was con- sistently breathtaking. A combination of irresistible script, melodious score, and astute production, “My Fair Lady” was undoubtedly the most successful FHS show, and, surprisingly enough, despite high costs, the first to turn a profit.

National Honor Society This year the Honor Society took part in the Thanksgiv- ing Pep Rally. A few members created a wonderful float characterizing the football coaches. Members were both delighted and surprised to learn that they had won first prize. Other members of the club ran a concession stand. Although not much money was raised, many people worked hard and enthusiastically. In December the induction of eight seniors, sixty-nine juniors, and three exchange students was held. The can- dlelight service was presided over by President Holly Per- pall, Vice-President Caroline McKee, and Secretary- Treasurer Martha Crowell. A large number of guests atten- ded despite terrible weather. Mr. McKee was the guest speaker. His wry comments were warmly received by both members and parents. The FHS chapter of the National Honor Society is designed both to recognize students who have been singled out as out- standing in character, scholarship, leadership, and service; and to help its members make the transition from receiving the honor to exercising the responsibility which it implies. This year, the club’s activities began with a potluck supper and a planning meeting. Many members attended, and plans were laid out for the November Walk-a-Thon for the benefit of the Jimmy Fund in memory of Tim Fuller. Several students worked by putting up posters, gathering sponsors, and going to the elementary schools in clown suits to stimulate interest among the younger children. On the day of the Walk-a-Thon many people helped to man the checkpoints and to serve in emergency vehicles if they were needed. With the help of a great number of students and townspeople, well over a thou- sand dollars was raised. Senior and junior members of the Honor Society went to Boston to present the money to the Jimmy Fund. Before going to the Jimmy Fund building for the presentation and lunch, members toured the Museum of Fine Arts. Seniors Sheryl Goodell, Richard Brundage, and Andree Fortin enliven walk.

The Key Club, led by president Scott Augusta, began another productive year by operating the concession stand at home football games. Other community projects and ser- vices included parking cars, helping with the annual blood- mobile, and donating canned vegetables for Christmas baskets. Christmas caroling and a party with the Lookout Club were highlights of this year’s activities. Sweethearts were Sue Wright, Betsy Gregory, and Kim Fernandes. 4 .4 XE t JyA 1 " 1 ftftci X V X • j|Sl V Lookout Club The annual Country Fair began gaining momentum at 10:00 in the mor- ning on Friday November 19 at the Recreation Building when members, assisted by the Key Club, began setting up booths and games. Children eagerly received candy and prizes from colorful clowns Betsy Gregory, Peggy Lawrence, June Payne, and Nancy Rebello, who enjoyed this role and played it convincingly to the delight of the young audience of admirers. Prizes were awarded to Lookout members Leslie Courcier, Ann Kamataris, and Jean Murray for best-decorated booths. Ann was also feted for selling the largest number of raffle chances. Profits rolled in from a myriad of games, sales, and chances, including: a craft table for which each member made one item, a cupcake walk, a bean bag toss, a jelly bean guess, and a bubble blowing contest. A big money-maker, as always, was the raffling of more than 100 prizes donated by local merchants. Lookout will use the proceeds of its successful fair for scholarships for its members.

Mr. DeWitt C. Jones III Administrator Barbara Connolly Guidance Ernie Miranda Aide HOUSE A Rita Maxwell Secretary Helen Roderick Aide John Shingles Guidance Greetings to the Class of 1977 — As the first class to spend its entire high school career in this building, you, more than anyone, can recognize the growing pains we’ve had since coming here. You’ve had to live with what must seem like continual changes while the school has been settling into its new setting. Some aspects of these last four years have been painful and frustrating, some have been pleasurable and rewarding but by and large I feel we’ve had a good four years together. Instead of grieving over our problems and errors, I’d prefer to look at our successes, and instead of remembering the past I prefer to look ahead to the coming years and the challenges they present and to hope that in some way we have helped to prepare you to meet these challenges suc- cessfully. I would urge you all to set your sights high; do not be con- tent with just average performances; find something ex- citing to do; maintain high standards; reach for the moon and as John Donne said: “Go and catch a falling star.” 35 tSU r mbit Scott Augusta Wendy Ballentine Christina (Bennett) Hester Tina Donna Banner Rafael Beltran T A 7 J u. i - • • ' %■ ; ■ .

Joyce Tessier demonstrates tactics. Girls ' Basketball Coach Ladd delivers pre-game pep talk. Mona Pinho steals the ball one more time. A long season coupled with competitive and strong opponents faced the girls as they began their 1976-77 season. Leaks in the field house roof and the track team running across the court couldn’t stop the surge for a successful season. Coach Helen Ladd, assisted by Senior Co- captains Sue Goulart and Beth Hills, spurred the Clipperettes into a triumphant 7-10 season. Although such a record is not outstanding, the girls must be given credit for rallying towards the end of every game, sometimes winning by one point. Eight of the ten games lost were within five points. Defense held most opponents to low scores. Undoubtedly, Seniors Sue Goulart, Mona Pinho, and Joyce Tessier, all third year varsity players, along with Rita Lopez, Beth Hills, and Barbie Pratt contributed most to team scoring. The finale of the season was the first ban- quet in early March, Awards were made to players the team felt had contributed most to the spirit and aggressiveness of squad play. Co-captain Beth Hills was chosen most dedicated player for 100% team sup- port and put out. MVP and MIP went to highest scorer Joyce Tessier with 111 points. Jo was an especially fine clinch player when baskets were desperately needed towards the end of games. Athletic Director Jack Reardon named Senior Mona Pinho as FHS Outstanding Female Athlete for 1976-1977. Behind the all-stars was the steady push of Angela Houston, Kitty Lee, JoAnn McKenzie, Jackie Freeman, Crista Jensen, and Terri Gomez. Pinho eludes opposition.

Robert Watson, Coach Business Boys’ Basketball Despite winning only three games the basketball team had a lot of spirit and desire. Senior captains, Butch and David Souza were instrumental in keeping up the enthusiasm. It was the youngest team in the league and coach Robert Watson was very pleased with the overall effort. Junior Kenny Pires was the Most Valuable Player as well as receiving an Honorable Mention from “The Boston Herald-American”. Sophomores Roger Mrusek and Bob Wilson were Most Improved and Best Rebounder, respectively. Overall Coach Watson was very enthused by the improve- ments on the team and he is looking forward to next year. (Front) Tim DeMello, Gary Reid, Tomm Connors, Timothy A.

Led by Captain Jim Estes, the Clippers skated to an undefeated season. Estes, who was assisted by Tim DeMello and Chris McEvoy, was the most consistent defen- seman in the league. Other stars were Tim DeMello, who led the league in scoring, and Eddie Monteiro, who compiled a 1.4 goals against average.

Winter Track season came, and so did the snow, the rain, the cold and the ice. This was the worst winter weather in years, but it did not deter the Girls’ Winter Track Team. They ran, plodded, slipped and travelled through it all. They perfor- med exceptionally well the whole season. This year’s team of 30 girls was a young novice team sprinkled freely with seasoned veterans. The team participated in 18 meets, from the informal four-team meets in the Falmouth fieldhouse to the National AAU championships, and did well everywhere they went. FHS won the Johnson and Wales Christmas Relay meet for the third year in a row; they also won the Metheun High School Invitational and the Bay State Coaches’ Invitational. They competed in the Dartmouth Relays and some team members ran in meets in Philly, New York City, and Montreal. The overall performance during the winter was consistently good with Terry Rush unbeaten in the hurdles, Karen Bissonnette in the shot put, Lee Gifford in the sprints, Nancy Buguey and Mary Conley in the distances, and an army of individual runners improving over the entire season. Individual top performers on the team were Nancy Robinson and senior Johanna Forman. Nancy ran very well and had best times during the season of :57.0 and 2:20.3. Johanna competed in Philly, Millrose, US Olympic, LaPresse and National AAU where she finished fourth in the 880. She competed for the USA team in the tri- country meet vs. the USSR and Canada, where she captured third place in the 800 meter run. Later Johanna came back to run a 600 in 1:20.9 to move into fifth on the US all time women’s 600 list. Despite some stiff competition, the Boys’ Winter Track Team finished with a satisfying 4 and 3 record. Standouts on the team were Jeff Martin, 1000 yards; and Dave Fucillo, shot put. The team was otherwise well balanced and had narrow losses to powerhouses New Bedford and Attleboro. Senior Captains Paul Meade, Tim Marken, and Peter Raftery led a young team which made up in spirit what they lacked in talent. Coaches Bruce Mogardo and Bob Laraia were very pleased with the overall effort of the team and look forward to another rewarding season.

Gymnastics The FHS Gymnastics Team, coached by Beverly Mangum and assisted by Marion Roddy, finished this season with an overall record of five wins and seven losses. Patrick Perry, Sue Madden, and Bernie Thompson led this year’s team placing 6-7 times in dual or tri meets. The highlight of the season came at the All-Cape meet where the team captured the fourth place trophy and four team members won individual medals. Patrick Perry took third place in the elite bars category; Sue Madden placed second in novice vaulting. Steve LaCock took fourth place in novice vaulting, and Bernie Thompson placed third in novice bars. Marijune (June-O) Miller clears the horse. Ginny McAuliffe demonstrates skill. Patrick Perry qualified for the state meet in vaulting. He is the only male ever to qualify for the State Meet and the first person from Falmouth to qualify. At the gymnastics banquet Mrs. Mangum and Miss Roddy awarded trophies in the following categories: Most Valuable Gymnast Bernie Thompson Most Dedicated . . Sue Madden and Bernie Thompson Most Improved Sue Madden i I i Li’l Abner Dogpatch, U.S.A., had never been quite like it was for four nights in March of 1977 as the senior class presented “Li’l Ab- ner,” a musical comedy based on A1 Capp’s comic strip. Music and lyrics were by Gene DePaul and Johnny Mercer, and the libretto was by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank (with the ex- ception of closing night, when it was semi-purposefully rewritten by several members of the cast). Peter Jones played the title role opposite Susanne Phelan and Liz Frosch, who were double-cast as the lovelorn Daisy Mae. Together, they made some of the most sickening duets ever written for the American musical come alive. The leads were both funny and poignant in their down-home roles. Brian McCue and Jeff Alexander shared the role of Marryin’ Sam, the fast-talking justice of the peace whose song, “Jubila- tion T.Cornpone,” was the biggest hit in the original production. Mammy and Pappy Yokum were portrayed by Holly Perpall, Dan Raven, and Pokey Medeiros. The other outrageous charac- ters included John Beckerle as the scheming General Bullmoose, Chris Vaccaro as the villainous, whammifying Evil Eye Fleegle, Tom Nolan as minimally-respected Senator Phogbound, and Bill Werderman as the Hulking Earthquake McGoon. Apassionata VonClimax, the Bronx-accented, voluptuous assis- tant to Gen. Bullmoose, was played by Heather Klimm and An- drea Toran. Dawgmeat, Moonbeam McSwine, and Dr. Finsdale were played by Grant Wilson, Cathy Kelleher, and Russell Brockhurst; Available Jones and the stunning Stupefyin’ Jones were hammed up by Tim Marken and Kim Root. Dan McCay was the all-purpose fill-in performer, who played everything from an inept society waiter to Colonel Sanders, and, of course, also portrayed several unusual foreign correspondents. The six “Put ’Em Back” wives were Betsy Gregory, Caroline McKee, Patty Kelleher, Nancy Rebello, Jean Murray, and Pam Hender- son. The muscle-bound husbands were played by Jim Estes, Tim DeMello, Jeff Fraser, Tomm Connors, Craig Amaral, and Fuad Jezzeny. The closing night performance, while not so artistic as the previous shows, was certainly as much fun and vastly more mis- chievous. Ad-libs flew all over the place, whoopie cushions pop- ped up in the most unlikely situations, and several characters found it difficult to keep a straight face. The production was the 22nd senior class play for director William Fraher. Sheryl Goodell student directed and was also a dancer in the show. Choreography was by Pat Lang. Stage direc- tor was Michael Helfen. Musical direction was provid ed by con- ductor Dennis Marotta and pianist James Stevens. Mr. Stevens put together one of the best senior class choruses in several years. For the directional staff and the students involved, “Li’l Ab- ner” was a labor of love and spoke very well for the tradition of the senior class play.

The length of the stay varies from a one year visit to a special two month summer program. The FHS chapter planned many activities and trips to familiarize local AFS students with the country, local and federal governments, and, most importantly, the people. All proceeds from the annual International Dinner were sent to a relief fund in Turkey, hom eland of this year’s AFS student Sait Aytemur. The FHS chapter also sponsored two exchanges for all AFS students on Cape Cod. AFS students attended Town Meeting week where they learned about town meetings as a form of government and they listened to discussions concerning the Indian land issue in Mashpee. Besides AFS club activities exchange students are encouraged to engage in their hobbies during their stay in Falmouth. Pursuing his interests in drama Sait portrayed the villainous role of Zolton Caparthy in this year’s All School Musical “My Fair Lady”. Sait also plans to make a movie focus- ing on his stay in Falmouth including shots from FHS. FHS also hosted two students from Sweden this year under the Swedish International Service (SIS). Lennart Norgren played on the varsity soccer team and demonstrated his proficiency with the English language by writing for the “Student Intelligencer.” Jan Cedergren, Sait, and Lennart were all inducted into the Honor Society as honorary members.

Business Club The Business Club was a newly for- med club at FHS this year. The main concern of the club is to encourage students to pursue careers in a business orientated field. Through fund raising projects the students raised enough money to go to Boston to visit a large company in order to observe the mechanics of an actual working experience. The FHS debate team, consisting of two levels: varsity and novice, competed in two meets this year. The team en- ded the season with an even record, winning at Bourne High School and losing on home ground. In both the varsity and novice divisions there are negative and affirmative teams, each made up of two peo- ple. The topic of this year’s debate was “Resolved: That a comprehensive program of penal reform should be adopted throughout the United States.” All team members researched this topic with the affirmative team trying to prove that this penal reform should be adopted and the negative team insisting that the present “status quo” system is the best possible.

SAE Future Nurses The Future Nurses Club began the year on October 6 with an induction of 33 new members increasing the membership to 55. New members were required to attend three training sessions where they learned how to make beds, and how to take tem- peratures, pulses, and blood pressures. Members worked under the super- vision of Registered Nurses on the hospital floors. They also spent time in the Emergency Room, the Inten- sive Care Unit, the Maternity Ward, and in Pediatrics. Meetings were held once a month. At each meeting there was a guest speaker who spoke on his her career in nursing. Plans were also made for fund raising projects such as car washes and bake sales in order to award a scholarship to a deserving senior. Assisted by R.N. Advisors Jane Bulluct and Lee Strifler and faculty advisor Peggy Savage club members participated in the annual Blood- mobile. The girls helped by taking temperatures and running errands.

CHESS CLUB MATH TEAM The 1976-1977 season of math competi- tion was the culmination of the first four years of participation by Falmouth High School in the Southeastern Massachusetts Mathematics League. Three present seniors who were freshmen on the original team, Russell Brockhurst, John Beckerle, and David Cory, have remained as the backbone of this year’s winning squad. At the end of the regular season of four meets, the FHS Calculators had finished second in the Southern Division of the Southeastern Conference, thus earning a spot in the playoffs to be held May 10. Lined up as adversaries will be the top teams from the three divisions of the Con- ference, competing for a berth in the state finals. MATH TEAM: Russell Brockhurst, Ken Shores, Lee Goodell, John Beckerle, Douglas Jones, David Cory, Michael Goldstein, Cynthia Bryan, Lee Ann Evans, Brian Schmitz, Michael Beckerle, Tim Parker. The Chess Club is open to any student; if one can’t play the game, Advisor Lucky Ross will teach the fundamentals. At Monday and Wednesday sessions, the club first seeks to determine the identities of the best five players by tourna- ment play. These five players then comprise the In- terscholastic Chess Team which competes with other high schools. Each player is ranked for proficiency in descending order: John Beckerle, Joe Uchmanowicz, Brian Schmitz, David Cory, while Brad Irish, Ryan Young, and Mike Beckerle succeed each other on Board Five. Interest is maintained through the interscholastic com- petition (Falmouth’s record is 6-4-0 and tied for Third in Eastern Mass.); tournaments to determine Chess Cham- pion of the School; anticipated meets with the faculty; and plenty of internal competition. i w 1 I fac:. ' • The newly-formed Latin Club’s officers included President Peter Tagtmeyer, Vice- President Marcy Milanese, and Secretary- Treasurer Jeff Johnson., At the first Satur- nalia a seven course meal was served in the tradition of Ancient Roman banquets to toga-clad members. The group toured the Roman section of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts on March 16 prior to an Italian lunch at the Cafe Amalfie. One of the club’s chief activities is to plan the annual Latin Banquet. Fourth year students adopt the robes of Gods and Godesses, second and third year scholars become citizens, and first year Latinists suffer as slaves. Caesar and Calpurnia (Ad- visors Eugene and Justine Phillips) preside over the festivities through which slaves are initiated to citizenship. LATIN SCHOLARS: (floor) Lee Ann Evnas, T.

The Spanish Club has become more popular than ever because it offers members a concentrated in- volvement with Spanish culture, whether they be students of the language or not. In November, members sold refreshments at the all-school Pep Rally. Another ac- tivity was a trip to a Spanish restaurant and flamenco perfor- mance in Boston in the Spring. Close-of-the-year activities in- cluded a dinner at which scholarships were awarded. Presi- dent Andrea Toran, Vice-president Kathy Rodrigues, Secretary Heather Klimm, and Treasurer Ernest Medeiros were advised by Mrs. Debra Sangster. 66 L HISTORY CLUB: (floor) Libby Harmer, Liz Frosch, Ginny Nielsen, Carolyn Dickey, (seated) Marge Frosch, Kathy Delaney, Lynn Burnett, Jane Woodwell, Abera Thomson, Lisa Cutillo.

United Nations Club The UN Club sent four delegates (Greg Abbott, Eric Hinxman, Debbie Hinxman, and Nancy Marschall, accom- panied by Advisor Sydney C. Roberts) to represent the Un- ited Kingdom on the Security Council at the Model United Nations Conference in New York City, March 11-14, 1977. Following a keynote address by U.S. Ambassador An- drew Young on the place youth must assume to assure a future free from war, the group attended opening ceremonies at the Statler-Hilton, and then went to work on the Security Council. Issues debated included: Admission of Vietnam; Rhodesia; Palestine; Southwest Africa; and Cyprys, Delegates skillfully manipulated the issues and voted, for example, against the admission of Vietnam and recognition of the P.L.O., but for Greek protection of British bases on Cyprus. History Club A new epoch in History Clubs was inaugurated by President Ginny Nielsen, her fellow officers, and Ad- visor Ellen Simmons this year. Mov- ing quickly through money-makers like bake sales and car washes, the group emerged with the Best- Decorated Truck Award at the Pep Rally, a weekend exchange with Weymouth South High, and an assist for the Democratic Town Committee. Back to money-making movement prompted the incredibly lucrative “Gong Show”, which provided an evening’s madcap entertainment by students and faculty, greatly under- rated by the peppy panel of per- jorators: Donna Valias, Constance Flood, Brian McCue, and Alfred Douglass. This bit of business finan- ced the group’s three day trip to Historical Washington.

Roberts Social Studies 67 Mr Louis Larrey Administrator HOUSE B During the week when this was written President Carter was bringing to the American people his unprecedented messages con- cerning the realities of our energy crisis and the absolute need for us all to do our share in conserving energy if we are to avert national, and perhaps international, disaster in the future. These presidential messages heightened our awareness that the predicament we face today, as well as the way out of the predica- ment, is uniquely a human affair. It is we humans who have been profligate with our finite fuel resources; it is we humans who now must be conservative over the next decades; and it is we humans who will need to put our collective talents to work to harness new sources of energy. You will leave us this -June and go your several ways to face, as do we all, a challenge unique in our history: either to continue our wastefulness and our usual habits of energy consumption or to es- tablish new values, new patterns of use, and new perspectives toward our energy resources. I am optimistic enough to believe the challenge will be successfully met. But I would offer this; that as we go about the serious business of meet ing the challenge of our diminishing fuel resources we con- currently devise new ways of being less wasteful of our human resources. In large measure our success in the first effort is tied to our success in the second. What more precious resource is there than the human mind and spirit? Will we not also save ourselves if we are less wasteful of ourselves. O Lunette L.

Junior Class The class of 1978 started the year off with an October Work Weekend. The jobs were abundant and class par- ticipation enabled it to be a large success. The second Work Weekend held in April although profitable, proved to be rather disappointing in class participation since there were many conflicting activities. President Jim Clifford, Vice- President David Murray, and Secretary-Treasurer Kathy Twohig were indispensible as they organized the commit- tees and answered telephones. The large amount of money raised during both weekends contributed to the success of “Time in a Bottle” the annual Junior-Senior Prom. Class participation was overwhelming as many worked hard to decorate the gym in floral arrangements and a green and white color scheme. The Junior Class was extremely productive and class approval is evident in the re-election of the three class officers. Secretary-Treasurer Lisa Peterson; President Joanna McKee; Vice-President Joanne McKenzie. Sophomore Class The sophomore class under the leadership of of- ficers Joanna McKee, Joanne McKenzie and Lisa Peterson and the guidance of advisor James Harrington began a productive year with a float for the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Enthusiasm remained high, as the class prepared for the traditional spaghetti supper. The final class project was the variety show. Through many hours of hard work and strong leadership, the show was a tremendous success. Highlights were the revival of the song “Send in the Clowns” by Joanna McKee and Lori Pilla and a dance routine to Peter Frampton’s hit son “I Wanna Go to the Sun”. Through good participation and enthusiasm, the class of 1979 had a profitable year. Freshman Class The Freshman class under the guidance of Mr. Eugene Phillips, began the year with the election of officers. Judy Woods, Bettianne Rubino and Anne Munson were elected Presi- dent, Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer respectively. The annual class show proved to be quite a success, as class participation was very enthusiastic. The variety of acts won audience approval and produced a large profit. A new ac- tivity which also was quite lucrative was a spring car wash, raising approximately $300.00. The final class project was a rather unexpected one, following the tragic death of John Silva Jr., the class set up a fund to help raise money for the hospital Intensive Care Unit. According to Mr. Phillips, the class of 1980 was both productive and cooperative. Vice-President Bettianne Rubino; Secretary-Treasurer Anne Munson; President Becky Woods. Perspective A staff of ten journalism students worked to produce Falmouth High School’s weekly news and feature program, “Perspective”. Students in Mr. James Winer’s TV Jour- nalism course used both class time and unassigned mods to cover the newsworthy events of the school, using the studio’s indispensible portable camera, the “Porta-Pac”. The journalism staff also produces an occasional hour- long program called “Conversation”. Among the noteworthy endeavors of the year was an hour-long “Con- versation”, hosted by Brian McCue, with BBC radio com- mentator Ken Goudie. Goudie was in America to aid the British coverage of the American presidential elections. Other “Conversations” included a talk with this year’s AFS students, co-hosted by Lennart Norgren and Brian McCue, and a discussion with Murrow vanMeter, co-owner of the Nickelodeon cinema. “Perspective” was directed this year by Mark Metell, Jim King, Arvo Mikkanen, John Houde, and Angie Fernandes. James Harrington TV Advisor Catch — 13 “Catch-13”, the TV studio’s morn- ing announcement program, com- pleted its fourth year. Under the direction of Mr. James Harrington, the show is produced entirely by the staff of 26 students. General manager of WFHS-TV was Mark Metell, who will be succeeded next year by this year’s assistant general manager, Jim King.

Besides weekly “beats” journalists were responsible for one or two stories every week. According to advisor James Winer and “Enter- prise” liason Michael Phelps this year’s paper was the best at reporting and covering the school and activities on a broad level. Coverage of athletic events, drama, student government, and other newsworthy activities kept students, faculty members, and townspeople aware of all the opportunities and activities available at FHS. Letters to the Editor and staff member editorials left room for concerned people to comment. TV and print journalists tour “Boston Globe’’.

Substitute Moderator — Anne Tessier Marie Doyle French r, W Moderator — Kathy Doonan With the opening of the new school, a different form of student government was instituted. Under the advisorship of Mrs. Marie Doyle a Town Meeting was established to give all students a voice in school policies. Each year a stu- dent moderator is elected to preside over meetings. In addi- tion, an eighteen member warrant committee is elected to collect and investigate articles. The Student Advisory Board is then responsible for alerting the school committee of these decisions. Prerequisites for CP courses, accelerated courses, a bike rack, and locks on bathroom doors are a sampling of articles passed by the student body and acted upon by school officials. STUDENT ADVISORY BOARD — Susanne Phelan, Brian McCue, Tim Marken, and Douglas Jones. Donna Valias discusses concept of accelerated courses.

Curtis M cKee Humanities Curriculum Chairman Well Done! In response to the editors’ request, I take pride in passing the final benison over this yearbook as it goes to press. The production of this volume has been remarkable in the number of people involved from beginning to end — all those listed as well as frien- dly “ghosts” like Messrs Carroll O’Brien, Goodman, Ms. Mangum, Nickerson, O’Brien in photo and copy efforts. Seldom, if ever, before have I been privileged to work with editors-in- chief like Peter, Peggy and Caroline, who could both monitor and cajole the best efforts of so many others.

Under the guidance of Coach Dennis Comolli, the girls went to the third round of the Eastern Massachusetts Tourney before being eliminated by Norwood. Junior Libby Harmer was the 1 player and Junior Lisa Daigle played second singles. Senior Betsy Gregory played 3 and lost only three times during the season. The Doubles Teams played well with Junior Lee Ann Evans and Sophomore Sue Domingos playing 1 and Sophomores Lani Goodhue, Karin Lebherz, and Amy Toran playing 2. With only Betsy Gregory graduating prospects appear bright for another successful season in 1978. Successful Tennis Teams continue to roll along as the final record shows at 18 won and 4 lost.

Led by four year varsity players, Tom Nolan and Jim Estes, the team made the quarter finals of the Eastern Mass Tourney. Sophomore Doug Comolli, as second singles player only lost once during the year and first doubles players Jim Estes and Kevin Pease were eliminated in the quarter finals of the doubles tourney. Number one singles player, Tom Nolan compiled the same record as the team, 19-4.

Many people felt that the Clippers would have a good hitting attack, but that the pitching would be a problem. However, it turned out that the pitching was more than adequate and that the problem was with the hitting. This is evident by the fact that the Clippers lost eight games by three runs or less. Captains Tim Marken and Craig Amaral helped guide the team’s per- formance. Bruce Cranshaw Softball Led by senior All-Stars Mona Pinho and Joyce Tessier the softball team enjoyed another fine season. The team won the league cham- pionship with a big 5-4 win over rival Barnstable on the last day of the regular season. In attaining the league championship the team moved on the State Tourney, only to lose to powerhouse Silver Lake 12-6. Awards at the end of the season were given to Joyce Tessier, Most Valuable Player; Jayne Doucette, Most Dedicated; and Barbie Pratt, Most Improved.

Spring came late to Falmouth this year. It was cold, rainy, and windy. The girls’ track team came out running. And run they did. The 24 girl squad captured everything in sight. They were un- defeated in dual meets and won the SMC title, they won the State Relay meet for the third year in a row, the State Class A-E Mass, track cham- pionships, and were runner-ups in the State Meet. This year’s squad was outstanding. Nancy Buguey, Mary Conley, Karen Bissonnette, Lee Gifford, Nancy Robin- son, Johanna Forman, and Terry Rush did yeowomen work in dual meets. They did so well that Falmouth only lost 2 running events in nine league dual meets. Karen Bissonnette, Johanna For- man, Nancy Robinson, and Nancy Buguey set school records this spring. Robinson, Buguey, Forman, and Kathy Bell combined to set a National High School 4 x 880 record 9:37.4 at the U. Mass Relays. Johanna Forman was the team’s out- standing runner. Johanna ran a 2:03.88 800 meters at an invitational meet in Kingston, Jamaica. She won every race this year to close out her High School career undefeated. She won her third State 880 and set her third 880 record (2:11.2). She will be a runner that will be missed next year. Johanna was truly the most outstanding runner in the state. She was ranked nationally in her John Carroll English (Front) Kathy Bell, Nancy Robinson, Joy Britcliffe, Karen Bissonnette, Johanna Forman, Nancy Buguey, Lee Gifford, Terry Rush, Joanne Frazier, Kathy McCurdy, Renee Theroux.

Despite these losses through graduation, Coach Paul Feeley is looking forward to an improved dual meet season in 1978. Twenty lettermen led by exceptional junior half-miler (1:58) Jeff Martin will return. Dave Fucillo (49’6”) junior shot putter takes Pete Raftery’s place in the circle. Junior Hur- dler Steve Martiros steadily improved form and time and next year can be counted on to double or triple in dual meets. Three out- standing vaulters Ken Foster, Dave Connors, and Kevin McCarthy should all break the IF barrier. With the exception of sophomore Bob Wilson Falmouth has no threats in the jumps. Coach Feeley will miss Dan Campbell, a consistent dual meet sprinter and D-Y Invitational 220 winner and Frank Scarito a valid 440 prospect as they transfer out of the Falmouth School System.

GOLF The girls’ golf team played 5 matches this year. They compiled a 2-3 record defeating Whitman- Hansen twice and losing to Brookline, Scituate and Hingham. Falmouth sponsored the Southeastern Mass. Girls’ Golf Championship held at New Seabury. They also participated in the State Tournament at Woodland Country Club in New- ton. The boys’ golf team had a fairly successful season in 1977 winning ten league matches and losing four. Three outstanding wins were two over D-Y, the first clinched when Scott Fitzpatrick parred the last hole to give Falmouth a 5-4 victory and the second over D-Y was locked up by freshman David Bumpus when he parred the last hole. The other victory was over Barnstable at Cape Cod Country Club. Bruce Kirtley played number one all season and was the most outstanding player. He was low qualifier in the State Individuals and also made All-Scholastic in the Boston Globe. The best winning percentage by an individual was recorded by John Fragale, a sophomore, who moved up from the number four position to number three and lost very few matches. Bob McMann, Jim Clifford, Steve Jusczyk, Steve Hamre, were other varsity members who earned letters. Certificates were given to Mike Glass, Larry Doyle, Marty Miller and Richard Stone.

Bruce Stee- ples, a junior at FHS, fascinated the audience with a trombone solo during the song “MacArthur Park.” After the Friday night concert, private parties enabled FHS stu- dents to relax and become acquainted with the musicians from -JRHS. Students exchanged views and ideas and discussed the dif- ferences and similarities between Canada and the United States. Students spent Saturday with their host families touring Montreal or the countryside. Many students traveled to Montreal by train and spent the day touring the Olympic site and Old Montreal, sampling Canadian foods and pastries, and shopping. First-time visitors to Montreal were shocked by the cleanliness of the city and the “metro” (subway). Students were also amused by signs like “Poulet Frit a la Kentucky” which are used because of the bilingual popula- tion. Many students attempted to use their school French, and the Canadians seemed to tolerate the Massachusetts accents. The Saturday night dance was a successful way to end the ex- change program. The FHS and JRHS stage bands performed together, square dances were taught, and records were played over the P.A. system. The atmosphere was totally different on Sunday morning — stu- dents were exhausted and unhappy at the prospect of a ten hour bus ride. Yet, somehow these feelings were overcome and friends ex- changed stories, jokes, and tales of the weekend. (Written by Caroline McKee for the “Student Intelligencer”) After a luggage inspection on Thursday morning, about 150 music students and chaperones departed by bus for Pointe Claire, Quebec, a suburb of Montreal. Excitement filled the air before and after stu- dents boarded the buses and remained high throughout the ten-hour trip. At rest stops students released energy by folk-dancing and skateboarding, which amused strangers as well as chaperones. Arriving at John Rennie High School around 7 p.m., Falmouth students were welcomed by their hosts for the weekend. After refreshments and a short dance, “billets” (guests) were escorted home. Falmouth musicians spent Friday morning and afternoon rehears- ing for the evening concert. Two in-school assemblies were offered to John Rennie students in order to test acoustics and timing. Students from both schools were especially impressed by the FHS stage band, which performed popular songs including “Hey Jude,” “Close to You,” and “Feelings”. The public concert on Friday night was a tremendous success. The audience was captivated by the talent and the musicianship of the Falmouth students. The chorus and the orchestra, under the direc- tion of Miss Carol Sykes, received a standing ovation after a rousing rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”. The stage band, always a highlight of an FHS concert, received a Carol Sykes Chorus and Orchestra The FHS chorus and orchestra, un- der the direction of Miss Carol Sykes, began its concert season on December 17, with music by J. S. Bach, Randall Thompson, Vivaldi, Handel, and others. March 25 was the Spring Con- cert. The program was repeated on April 1, at John Rennie High School in Pointe Clair, Quebec. The program was well-received in both places. May 4 was the Spring Pops Concert. Because the orchestra had not performed with another orchestra in three years, Miss Sykes organized an exchange with the Worcester Youth Orchestra on the same date. Playing in a larger group was a great ex- perience for both Worcester and Falmouth. This concert was repeated by the chorus and combined orchestras in Worcester on May 20. On May 18, selections from the Pops Concert were performed for the Lawrence School to recruit incoming freshmen. The chorus sang for the last time this year at Awards Night on June 2. The two selections, chosen by seniors, were “Magic To Do” from Pippin and “Bright New Day.” Many members of the chorus and orchestra also par- ticipated in the Cape Cod, Southeast, All-State, and New England music festivals. In addition to performing, the orchestra and chorus members worked hard to raise money for the Montreal trip and for uniforms. Money was raised in a bake sale, a raffle, and by the sale of socks and jewelry. The groups had enough money left over at the end of the year for a scholarship which was awarded to Martha Crowell and for the purchase of barbershop quartet music.

Ten students and advisor Ellen Simmons spent three days touring the city. Highlights of the trip included the Smithsonian, the Capital, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Arlington Cemetery, the Watergate Complex, and a Tourmobile trip around the entire city. I I i Nursery School Under the guidance of Mrs. Elizabeth Metcaff, a pro- gram began with the opening of FHS. Senior girls con- duct a nursery school for three and four year old children. Each of the students involved is responsible for planning daily activities which include stories, arts and crafts, and circle games. The school begins in October and ends with the departing of the seniors. Children for the coming year are selected in a random drawing held in April, with an equal number of three and four year olds chosen. All girls in the program must complete the Child Developement course and must enroll in the Child care Aid course as seniors. This year’s aides were Wende Chapman, Missi Figuerido, Jean Gadsby, Kathy Leahy, Roxanne Marquis, Nancy Marshall, Karen Payne, Pam Rowitz, Suzanne Stone, Sandy Tavares, and Cheryl Whitaker. 102 f A Members of the Honor Bowl Lawrence Hobbie, John Beckerle, captain Brian McCue, and Marge Frosch defeated all opponents during many close and exciting matches.

For the third consecutive yeai Falmouth High School’s entry in th Massachusetts High School Dram Festival reached the state finals at th John Hancock Hall in Boston. The 197 production was Oscar Wilde’s “The In portance of Being Earnest,” directed b Michael Helfen and student directc Autumn Wieden. Five members of th cast — Corinne Callahan, Daria Lucai Brian McCue, Holly Perpall, an Susanne Phelan won all-star cas awards at the regional level. Brian McCue and Daria Lucas wo awards at the semi-finals, and Bria and Holly received All-State cas honors. The beautiful and remarkabl functional set design was by Rya Young, and the Victorian costuming wa coordinated by Lynne Francis. mmm The final production of the FHS Performing Arts Department’s 1976-77 season was Tom Jones’ and Harvey Schmidt’s off-broadway musical, “The Fan- tasticks”. Although a cutting of the show had been produced the previous year, this was the first full production of the show which has run longer than any other New York production in history. The narrator (and sometimes active character) El Gallo was played by Brian McCue, who sang both the popular “Try To Remember’’ and the celebrated “Rape Song”. Luisa, the naive young button-maker’s daughter, was played by Corinne Callahan and Daria Lucas; Matt, her gallant (though inexperienced) lover, was played by Greg Dorsey and Matthew Sheehan. The vaudevillian fathers, Hucklebee and Bellomy, were portrayed by Chris Vaccaro and Scott Peters. Henry, the ancient and somewhat addled actor and his death-performing sidekick Mortimer, were played by Paul Selig and Holly Perpall. The mute was Scott Bohr. Directors were Michael Helfen and Paul Selig. Choreography was by Pat Lang, and the orchestra consisted of the indispensable pianist, Aggie Kerr. (Front) Aggie Kerr, Scott Bohr, Pat Lange.

Daria Lucas as Louisa " Try to Remember . . . ” Tableau I Cimc in a fettle Since April vacation it had been on the minds of many. Business in the tuxedo rental shops and florists had picked up considerably. Dress shops were filled with frantic girls trying to find the perfect gown. Getting a table in a restaurant for that night had become a rare occurrence. What was this rare event that filled the air with anxiety? The FHS Junior- Senior Prom was the event, and to most it lived up to expectations. The question was asked and an answer received about three weeks before the Prom. He then carefully laid out his schedule for those three weeks so as not to overlook anything. After she chose her dress and he saw it, he headed for the tux shop. It was early, and he had a great many tuxes to choose from. He decided and ordered. He was told to pick it up the Thursday before the Prom. He found out what type of corsage she wanted and ordered it also. He was told to pick it up Saturday afternoon. They decided where they wanted to have dinner and made a reservation for twelve at 6:30 P.M., with the intention of arriving at the prom between 8:30 and 9:00. Everything seemed set, theoretically at least. Thursday comes. He can’t go to pick up his tux because of a prior com- mitment. Some friends ask for it when they get theirs but are told that it isn’t ready and to come back Saturday. That’s O.K., he’ll manage. Saturday comes and he is helping decorate the gym. Flowers for the tables have to be picked up that morning. He decides to get the corsage at the same time. He then heads back to the high school. To keep it fresh he puts it in a refrigerator in Cafeteria A. He then races to pick up his tux; thank God, it’s ready. He gets back to the high school and finishes up some odds and ends. It’s quarter to four so he heads home to get dressed; he is supposed to pick her up at 5. Another couple asks to ride with them; he is supposed to pick the guy up at quarter of five. Five o’clock rolls around, and he’s leaving the house; where’s the corsage? He left it at the high school. He raced to the high school and picked it up. Back to his friend’s house to pick him up. His friend has no shoes. A few phone calls later, and the shoes arrive. He takes his friend to his date’s house, where they are all meeting to go to dinner. He then goes on to her house. Several introductions and photographs later, they head for the meeting place. Three couples haven’t shown up by 6:15. They leave for the restaurant, about a 30-minute ride. They’re now fifteen minutes late. Before they leave Falmouth he discovers his wallet is missing. Home again to check his bureau. That’s where it is and again, several introductions later, they’re on the road. They arrive at the restaurant at 7, a half hour late. Their party of 12 is down to eight. Dinner passes without any inci- dents and they head for the prom. What do you know — 9 and they arrive at the gymnasium, back on the time schedule. Despite a few blown fuses early in the evening, the prom goes very smoothly. It is far more than he ever expected. Throughout the evening he can’t believe he is at the prom, which he had looked forward to for over a year. The party afterwards is dull and breakfast is quiet, the silence broken only by yawns, but he had one of the best times of his life packed into those three hours. The next day is unbelievably depressing. That night he had planned for so long was over, but there wasn’t one moment he wanted back. He was just glad he wasn’t the kid who got a flat tire on the way and was two hours late. (First printed in the “Student Intelligencer” on Tuesday, June 7, 1977.)

I certainly hope that our association in the Falmouth High School has produced more joy than woe for each of you and that you will remember your years here fondly. Fond memories, however, do not make happy lives and my message is simple: High school is only one of many stepping stones in life. To invert Madison Avenue, “You’ve got a long way to go, Baby.” In the next five to ten years you are going to be making some very important decisions that only a few of you have thought much about before this year. You are going to have to think about what kind of job best suits you, how much educa- tion you should pursue, who your friends should be, whether or not marriage is a challenge you wish to face, and how much energy you should devote to solving the tremendous difficulties that surely face all of us in the future. You can shrink from some or all of these matters by forgetting about further educa- tion taking a job that does not tax your abilities, refusing to make a sincere commitment to another human, and vegetating in front of a TV “letting George or Ginger worry about it.” But you can not do that and come back to a reunion of the Class of 1977 with any sense of self worth. To be glad you are alive and a citizen of this country you have to resolve right now that your first step off the platform, diploma in hand, will be a bold one and you must realize that “if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.” We already have plenty of problems and those of you that I have gotten to know in the last two years represent plenty of high quality solutions. I only hope you can live up to your potential. Caroline Akins Cary i j 5 Jeffrey C-S Alexander Manuel J. Andrade Marilyn Boesse Boe Kw Reuben F. Briggs Lynn M.

Many skits were revived from the freshman and sophomore variety shows while other acts were take-offs on class activities. “Superlatives on Parade,” “put ’Em Back,” and a skit from the junior class work-weekends were highlights of the evening’s “unpolished” performances. Performers included (Clockwise) Holly Perpall and Dan McCay as emcees; Heather Klimm and Martha Powers “looking for the bridge to Martha’s Vineyard,” Tim (Denise) DeMello, Craig (Amelia) Amaral, Peter (Janice) Jones, Jim (Emily) Estes, and Tom (Nauseating) Nolan in the Miss FHS beauty pageant; most dramatic and intelligent Brian McCue and most musical Richard Brundage hamming it up; Susanne Phelan again describing class feelings through the song “Anticipation”; and a typical day at FHS featuring Holly Perpall as “teacher” and Tom Nolan playing Clarence the “do-gooder”. I Senior Banquet Seniors met for one of the last times at the annual banquet at the Sea Crest Hotel on May 31. After a very enjoyable dinner, gifts were given to class advisor, Mrs. Joan Tan- sey and class president, Betsy Gregory. The band, “What’s Next” started playing around 8 and continued until 11. The entire evening proved to be most enjoyable for all who attended. Chris Vaccaro receives a Lawrence High School scholarship from James Kinney. Student Anticipation.

Kinney, awards scholarships. h ! i i i » Principal, Peter Clark addresses graduates. Emotions reached their greatest height at graduation ceremonies Friday evening as Susanne Phelan sang the closing verse to “Kiss Today Goodbye,” a song which describes the seniors’ feelings toward their final year. “We did it all for love” was the main theme of class President Betsy Gregory’s farewell speech to the graduates of 1977, the first class to complete four years at Falmouth High School. In the commencement address Dr. Robert A. Frosch recounted his feelings and future plans at his own gradua- tion. He spoke of the challenges and rewards awaiting those who would be willing to strive to meet their goals. He urged graduates not to close doors but to remain open-minded. He recalled that, of his high school goals and plans, few have been fulfilled. Johanna Forman and Brian McCue received the Roll of Honor Awards from principal, Peter Clark. By vote of the class Johanna and Brian were chosen as the outstanding students in the class. In a short speech Mr. Clark expressed his appreciation to the class of 1977 for their “comradeship” and aid in making a new system work. Superintendent of Schools Paul F. Olenick extended his congratulations and warm wishes of success and happiness to the graduating seniors. He also commented on the capabilities and accomplishments of this class. As president of the National Honor Society, Holly Per- pall addressed parents, graduates and guests. Brian McCue, chairman of the student advisory commit- tee, and Jeff Alexander, vice president of the senior class, made formal introductions of Mr. Olenick and Mr. Edwin Medeiros, Chairman of the School Committee. Before mak- ing his introduction Brian thanked his classmates for choosing him for the Roll of Honor. Aided by secretary-treasurer Wende Chapman and Susan Madden, Mr. Medeiros presented diplomas to 374 graduates. (First published in the “Student Intelligencer” by Caroline McKee and Richard Paine.)

Quick instituted the Honor Guard as an academic recognition for girls to enhance the ceremony. Mark Pendleton Class Marshal Superintendent, Paul F. Olenick, presents 374 graduates for graduation. Betsy Gregory Class President Betsy Gregory bids farewell to classmates. As each of us sits here tonight, a different thought passes through our minds. Tomorrow is fast approaching, and yet we have not fulfilled today’s dreams. So suddenly reality stares us in the face as it did four years ago, when we entered a new environment with new experiences yet to be conquered. As I look upon the many faces of my fellow classmates, in light of these ex- periences, I am reminded of the quote by William Allen White: “I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday, and I love today.” It is evident that over the last four years our class has pulled together to create the largest treasury of any Senior Class. But more important is the fact that we possess the talents necessary to maintain our confidence in today, to create a bet- ter tomorrow, and that our limitations in life are the ones we set ourselves. All of us have worked hard for this day and the memory of it will be a different meaning for each of us. My memories of our togetherness are filled with smiles, tears, laughter, and as you might be able to tell tonight, fear — such that I will never forget. As I walk out this door tonight, I know the moments I’ve shared with this class are ones which will never be recaptured. So I will move on and kiss this class and today goodbye. Thanking you all from the bottom of my heart For all the good times Good Luck and Farewell 1 Brian McCue, Chairperson of the Student Advisory Board, thanks classmates for Honor Roll Award before introducing Paul Olenick.

Shingles yi Tribute to Uou All Sait Aytemur was citizen of Falmouth and the world as the 1976- 1977 foreign exchange students spon- sored through the American Field Service Exchange Program. Sait’s year in Falmouth with the Worth Campbell family as host was divided among AFS Club activities, making friends, participating in dramatics, working at a local supermarket, and speaking to various organizations. Thus he fostered the spirit of inter- national good will for his native Turkey and the community of na- tions in much the same way the AFS Program seeks to establish human understanding as a means of world peace. The directors, officers and staff of the Falmouth National Bank join in sincere congratulations to the graduating Class of 1977. We are also truly pleased to join in a very special sentiment ... A TRIBUTE TO YOU ALL ... for the devotion and dedica- tion of students, parents, ad- ministrators, and the faculty of Falmouth High School.
